What has it been like leading S3 through COVID-19?
As a software company, it has actually been fairly easy for us. Everybody’s on a VPN [Virtual Private Network] all the time anyway. Obviously we miss the personal interaction, but from a development standpoint, it has been very successful.
On the sales and customer service side, we had expected to see a bit of a slowdown, but we’ve actually had a substantial increase in customer inquiries. This probably has to do with the fact that customers are online more, just as we are. Many people in the New York area, for example, who had an hour or two-hour commute, are working and focused. And there is also a reduction in meetings and other office distractions.
Are you planning a return to the office anytime soon?
